View dismissal Asad Shafiq c Amla b Tsotsobe 19 30 36 3 0 52.77
7.3 The bouncer does the trick. Langeveldt had tried it before but Asad Shafiq managed to connect with the pull shot on that occasion. He has the tendency to get on to the front foot a touch too early and hence the bouncers. This time around, Tsotsobe's bouncer came on to him quickly and he was in no position to play that shot. He was late on the pull and ended up swatting it to mid-on. 26/1
View dismissal Mohammad Hafeez c Langeveldt b Botha 68 125 84 7 0 80.95
30.2 well, Hafeez was threatening to give Duminy his wicket, but in the end it is Botha who prises it out. It is again wide outside off and he again cuts uppishly. Langeveldt from short third man skips across to his right and pouches it nicely as he tumbles across. Well played by Hafeez, think the heat and humidity might have affected his concentration. 140/2
View dismissal Younis Khan lbw b Botha 54 110 75 2 0 72.00
34.5 gone. Botha nails Younis on the sweep. That was tossed up, landed outside off and was turning in as Younis reached across to sweep. He missed and it rapped him on the pads. Was it hitting outside the line of off? Replays suggest it hit Younis just outside the line of off. Asad Rauf doesn't think so. Well played Younis, but this is a huge moment in this game. 157/3
View dismissal Misbah-ul-Haq c Ingram b Tsotsobe 14 31 25 0 0 56.00
37.2 Misbah holes out to deep square-leg. He went for the big hit and swung it straight to the fielder. Tsotsobe celebrates. Pakistan are wobbling a touch and Shahid Afridi walks in. Misbah tried to lift it much straighter but ended up dragging it over square-leg 165/4
View dismissal Fawad Alam b Langeveldt 9 29 13 0 0 69.23
40.5 Does anyone get surprised anymore with these collapses? Comfortably Numb. This one lands on a length on the middle and moves towards the off stump. Fawad Alam didn't do much to prevent it from going towards its destination; he crouched and stabbed at it but the ball escaped his poor attempts, to stop it, collided with the inside edge and fell on the off stump. Clatter. 177/7
View dismissal Shahid Afridi* c Smith b Tsotsobe 1 2 2 0 0 50.00
37.5 Five down. They were 140 for 1; now they are 167 for 5. Collapse time. It was a length delivery and Afridi went for the big hit over the infield but lifted it straight to mid-off. Gone! 167/5
View dismissal Abdul Razzaq c †de Villiers b Tsotsobe 2 6 6 0 0 33.33
39.4 Lovely catch from AB. Tsotsobe, who had a good Twenty20 series, is doing it again in the ODIs. It straightened around off and middle from short of lengthand Razzaq was surprised; he hopped up and stabbed out at it and got the inner edge. AB de Villiers dived to his left to take it. Pakistan crumbling here. 173/6
Zulqarnain Haider not out 12 42 29 0 0 41.37
View dismissal Umar Gul c †de Villiers b Morkel 3 12 8 0 0 37.50
43.5 And then they were two. It was the slower one, a length delivery in the corridor outside off stump and Gul had a fatal poke at it. Edge and gone. 183/8
View dismissal Saeed Ajmal run out (Kallis/†de Villiers) 3 15 7 0 0 42.85
47.1 from Morkel, Ajmal is run out. It was chopped to right of third man where Kallis stopped and fired an accurate throw to AB who broke the stumps. Ajmal couldn't reach in time. The third umpire pressed the wrong button initially and flashed not out before he corrected it. 196/9
View dismissal Shoaib Akhtar c Miller b Langeveldt 6 7 9 0 1 66.66
48.6 Pakistan all out 203. They lost 9 wickets in the space of 63 runs. Shoaib went for the slog and top-edged it to wide mid-off where Miller settled under the ball. A smiling Tsotsobe leads the South Africans off the field. 203/10

GC Smith* retired hurt 18 23 2 0 78.26
5.1 from Mohammad Hafeez, Dropped by Zulqarnain, is it? Smith shaped to defend and pushed outside the line of the ball. It clipped the inner edge and went to the right of the keeper. Zulqarnain didn't even move his gloves. He didn't expect that inner edge. Don't think it hit his gloves. 29/0
View dismissal HM Amla lbw b Saeed Ajmal 35 57 29 3 1 120.68
12.4 It was around the off-stump line and Amla pressed back in a hurry as the ball skidded on. The bat came down but the ball skidded on quicker. Have to see the replay to really see where it hit him. So please to wait. Amla wasn't too happy with the verdict. Hawk eye shows that it would have hit the off stump of Amla. It landed on the middle and skidded on towards the off. It also kept a touch low. 70/1
JH Kallis retired hurt 66 88 5 1 75.00
35.3 from Umar Gul, Kallis essays a crisp little pull shot and while everyone else enjoys the timing, placement and utter ruthlessness of the shot, Kallis goes down, writhing in pain, holding the thigh as he crumpled. His face is contorted in pain as he stretches and tries to reach the toes. He is down for the count here 188/2
View dismissal AB de Villiers c & b Saeed Ajmal 51 60 53 6 0 96.22
28.3 Ajmal does him in with another drifter that holds its line. AB chipped out, but was just a foot short of getting to the pitch. That was all it needed for Ajmal's floater to do the trick as it held the line and took the outside half of Ajmal's bat as he went through with the drill-flick. Came back at the rate of knots to Ajmal who did well to hold on. Nicely done. 147/2
